A lllsliiiblni;Factor.
Tlio iiggrossivo policy of llio
("unadiun Puoilio railway iii its competition with the transcontinental
lines to the south of it is causing no
small amount of uneasiness among
those interested in the matter. The
Canadian road is pushing its rivals
at every available point. Arrangements hnve already been made, or
are being made, for connection with
San Francisco and Portland by way
of Pugot Sound, for steamships from
Asia and from Europe, for lines of
rail connecting the system with the
great flour and wheat centres of the
American North-West, for direct
communication between Montreal
and Boston; and a line touching
Michigan at Detroit and New York
State at the Niagara River is spoken of as more than a possibility of
the near future. "As a disturbing
factor iu our railway arrange-
ents, says the Iron Age, the "Canadian Pacific has not its equal among
Amercian roads, and the problems
raised by its policy are of the
greatest importance." The explanation of this, of course, lies in the
fact that the Canadian road has
government Backing, while the
trunk lines with which it competes
east of the Missouri River were
built and are supported by private
capital; nnd ' its transcontinental
rivals, though subsidized with grants
of land, do not, like it, possess independent access to lwth seaboards.
Add to all this the fact that England has at last begun to 'show a
practical interest in the Canadian
road, and it is not difficult to under-'
stand the alarm manifested by our
neighbors. In continuing its remarks on the subject, the Iron Age
says: "This competition of the
Candidn Pacific may yet have an
important bearing upon the question of Commercial Union with
Canada, under decisions of late.
Under the influence of Canadian
competition and of other factors in
the problem of scarcely less importance—such as the improvements in
Sault Ste. Marie Canal—we nre
rapidly solving the question of
quick time and low freights between
the Pacific and the Atlantic. In this,
as in all other lines of trade, what is
to tho advantage of the people at
large may be severe upon those injuriously affected. It is hard to
find a remedy for thia We, of
course, would prefer our American
lines, but what if the Canadian
road is cheaper) Should not our
manufacturing interests take advantage of low rates) As to further
aid to American lines from government, it is not expected, and our
transcontinental roads which have
allowed government gifts to be
diverted from their treasury may
yet wish they had reserved to themselves the money once theirs." This
we take to mean that the American
raids have little hope of ever being
ablo to oflV'i' better rates or quicker
transportation to cither seaboard for
the products of an important area
of the United Status than the
Canadian road oll'ris; and that, inasmuch as tho United States is
morally bound to nfi'ord those products every prossible facility for
reaching foreign markets, it should
tako measures to secure the wiping;
out of the customs barrier which
now prevents acoess to the shorter
and cheaper route. It may be,
therefore, aa our contemporary says,
that the competition of the Oanndian Pacific with the railway system of the United States will havo
an important hearing upon the question of Commercial Union. —Mail.
Columbus will no doubt get nil
the credit, at thu proposed quiidri-
centcniiirrl celebration in 1802, of
of having discovered Arueria; but
tho fact is now almost undisputed
that I>if lirhrksou, the JNorsiiiiirin,
hnd uearly 500 years strut of him.
"There is no historical fact in the
world better established than that
America was discovered by the Icelanders in tho year A.!). 1001,"
writes Prof. Majunssuu, of Cambridge University Library, in England, and ho adds: 'There is nob a
learned body in Europe that over
breathes a doubt about it. The
saga of tho discovery is no legend;
it is sober historical narrative. It
can be read in the "Antiquitntes
Amoriconw," published by the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Copenhagen, a copy of which, no doubt,
adorns the shelves of the Massachusetts Historical Society." lt is
also  a   well-authenticated   historic
fact that Columbus visited Iceland
in 1477 and learned of Erickson's
discovery, the records of whioh had
been preserved.—Mail,

Winnipeg, Oct. 31.—There ia nothing now in railroad circles.. Negotiations nro off and no prospect uf the
road -this year. Holt the contractor,
leaves for New York to-day.
TH8 ST0KM8 CONTINUE.
Norfolk, Va,, Nov. 1.—The storm
which visited this suction on Sunday
and Monday, has proven most disastrous. Although tho telegraph lines
along tho coast are down, yet the
meagre reports received indicate that
at least fifty vessels are ashore, many
of them total wrecks. As yet no lives
have been reported lost. \ A steamship
ia reported ashore at Ocean View, 15
miles from this point.
OOOD RIDDANCE.
San Francisco, Nov, 1.—The str.
Gaelic will sail for China on the Oth
inst. with the largest lot of departing
Chinese that has left this coast for
several years. Over 1200 men and a
few wonion will return on that day to
their native land.. This sudden departure of the Mongolians is due to
the impending New Year which is celebrated with tfleet in the flowery kingdom.
O'ltRIEN IN JAIL.
Cotik, Nov. 1.—Attempts were made
today iu jail to compel Wm. O'Brien,
sentenced to 3 months imprisonment
under the Crimes Act for the use of
seditious language at the Mitchelstown
mass meeting, to undergo treatment
as an ordinary prisoner. O'Brien said
such treatment 'Vxs an outrage, and he
will die beforo ho submits to the humiliation. Hu passed an almost sleepless night, and louks weary aud worn
after the greut excitement and strain
he has undergone during the past 24
, hours. The governor of the jail sent
a tju'cial messenger to Dublin castle
asking for instructions. Should the
answer be to treat O'Brien as any
other prisoner, his hair will be cut in
the prison out, nnd he be placed on
the ordinary fare, and compelled to
undergo the usual discipline, and be
one tif the jail's regular inmates. The
press of this city denounce the treatment uf the distinguished editor from
first to last as a piece of sovereign injustice.
CANTERBURY ON THE PEACE HKMufelAl.
London, Nov. 1.—The Archbishop of
Canterbury has written a letter concerning the American peace memorial,
hi which he says: "If America saw
her way about this, English Christians
would be eager to accept. I wonld
myself." Cardinal Manning hopes
that the president and cougreBs wilt
give effect to the petition, and says
that war between " the United States
and our brethern in America would be
fratricide."
DILLON ON THE STUMP.
Dublin, Nov. 1. — Mr. Dillnii,Bpeak-
ing at a League meeting in Limerick
to-day, said that a partisan judge had
continued the Mitdiolsfown sentence
upnn O'Brien under circumstances ns-
tounding to those unaccustomed to
tho mockery of law prevailing in the
Irish c-iurts. If O'Brii'ii's friends had
had force enough to prevent this, they
would have rescued him at any cost.
He would scorn people, who, having
the power to procure liberty, would
submit to such brutal tyranny.
Mr. ParpetiiB Boilean, Ottawa, says:—
"1 was radically cured of piles, from
which I had been suffering for over two
months, by the use of Thomas' IDulectric
Oil. I used it both internally and externally, taking it in small doses before
meals and on retiring to bed. In one
week 1 was cured, and have had no
trouble since. I believe it saved iny
lifo."

JEFF DAVIS DVLNO.
Macon, Oa., Nov. 2.---There are
considerable doubts ivs to whether
Jefferson Davis will return to his isolated
homo at Beauvoir Miss, alive. His
condition is pronounced to-day extremely precarious; for sevoral years
ho has boon troubled with a serious
affection of tho heart, which the excite-
mment of the lust week served only
to aggravate. Since Saturday he has

ou charge of murder. Last December
Charles Ccdilate died under very mysterious circuniBtinces he was supposed
to have been poisoned as hia wife and
child were very sick at a time. Yesterday Mrs, Cedilate aud her littlo son
wero again taken very siok and bat
for tho prompt assistance of a physic- -
iaii both would have died. It has
since been discovered that arsenic was
placed iu some cranberry pie by Mrs.
Parker, mother of Mrs.' Cedilate.
There is no longer any doubt in the
minds of the authorities, that the two
poisonings were tho work of the old'
woman. Mrs. Parker is 00 years old
and as she is believed to be insane,
She will be sent to the asylum.
A SPLENDID SHOWING.
Montreal, Nov, 2.—The gross
earnings of the Canadian Pacific railway for September were 11,063,208
ana expenses (685,239 leaving a net
profit of 8377,966 against a net profit

ItE-ORO ANIMATION SCHEME.
New York, Nov. 2.—A meeting of
the prof erred stook holders of the
Northern Pacific railroad company will
beheld to-day to authorize a nev
issue of bonds. By the plan of re-
organization, no bonds in addition to
the 8200,000 per mile provided by it
can be issued without the assent of at
least three fourths "of the preferred
stock. Tlio necessity of extending
dividend certificates which mature at
the ond of the year aud of raising
funds for the completion of the Cas--
cade tunnel has led to a proposal by
the directors to issue not over $12,000,-
000 bonds for these and other purposes.

TUI8 AFTKRXOOJf'8 DESPATCH*.
THE ANARCHISTS MUST HANG.
Washington, Nov,' 2.—Chief Justice Waite to-day delivered the opinion
of the U. S. supreme curt in the case
of the seven condemned Chicago anarchists. The decision affirms the judgment of the lower court denying the
application of the writ of error and.
says that the Illinois jury laws aro
constitutional. Chief Justice Waite
in a long aud carefully prepared
opinion, whioh occupied 35 minutes in
reading, read the decision of the court
The court holds iu brief: 1st. That
the first ten amendments to the constitution are limitations upon the federal
and and not upon the state action.
2nd. That the jury law of the state
of Illinois is upon its face valid and on
all points similar to the powers with
the constitutional provisions to the
statute of Utah, which was sustained
in this court in the case of Hoft vs.
the territory of Utah. 3rd. That it
does not appear in record tbat upon
evidence at the trial the court should
hsve declared Juror Sanford incompetent. 4th. That the objection to uie
admission of John Most's letter end
the cross-examination of Spies whioh
counsel for the prisoners virtually
compelled them to testify against themselves, were not objected to in the trial
court, and that therefore no foundation was laid for the exercise of this
jurisdiction. Oth. That the questions raised by Gen. Butler in the
caves of Spies and Fielden upon the
basis uf tlieir foreign nationality wen
neither raised nor decided in the state
courts and therefore cannot be considered here. Tho writ of error prayed
for uiu*.t consequently be denied.
There was no dissenting opinion.

Notable Events.
In our Inst issuo we referred to
the fact that yesterday was the anniversary of events which aro among
the most important in tho history
of the city. On the 1st of November, 1886, the lirst passenger train
for this city come over the 0. P. R.,
and we were at once placed in
direct railway connection with the
whole American continent; To this
result, tho people of Westminster
had been looking forward for many
years. It was felt by everybody
that we should be left far behind in
the race for supremacy without
direct and easy connection with the
railway systems of tho continent,
flowing past our doors woro the
waters of our great rivor, tlio natu-
nl highway of commerce for this
district, and a resourco froin which
we derived uo small advantage; but
the river without tho railway could
never make this city the commercial contre for which nature designed it. The people of Westminster wore not content to play second
fiddle to any other portion of the
province, and they were determined
that, if it were possible, their city-
should be put in possession of first-
class advantages in tho way of trade.
It cost us a large sum of money to
secure the railway—larger than it
ought to have cost—but we are sure
no one will now say that the amount
hus been expended in a project from
which there was no adequate return.
In the whole history of this city
there has never been a year of more
i jbstantial and satisfactory progress.
We have beon brought into touch
with parts of the province with
which, without the railway, we
oould not expect to acquire or maintain satisfactory business relations.
We have opened up to us possible
markets of vast extent in eastern
Asia, by means of the transpacific
steamship line. Wo hare found a
large and growing market in the
interior and east of the Rocky
Mountains for our surplus lumber,
our fish, and our fruit. We have
secured a place on the great avenues of commerce which enables us
to enter into competition, on equitable terms, with any producing or
distributing centre on the Pacific
coast. These are some of the direct
benefits coming to us from the completion and operation of the Canadian Pacific Railway to this city;
and the confidence in our future inspired by the event shows itself in
the substantial buildings and improvements of a costly and permanent character everywhere to be
s?en in the city. And what has
bsen done this year is possibly but
the beginning. The erection of one
fine substantial place of business
makes it necessary that others of a
like character should be erected.
The wooden shops which still remain
a disfigurement to our principal
busman rtreets muBt give way to
more pretentious structures which
shall be more in keeping with the
general character of the new and
improved order of architecture. Indeed, it is even now stated that
next spring nearly the whole south
ride of Columbia st. will bo adorned
with massive brick blocks, and the
north side will certainly have to
follow the example of the south, or
lose its business. It is the opinion
ef many citizens that the coming
year will see a more general development of the city than has taken
place this year, and the second anniversary of the opening of our railway will find a city which the residents of 1886 would hardly be able
to recognize. We hope it will also
find our citizens enjoying the fruits
of many new enterprises. Westminster enjoys beyond question the
most favorable situation for the establishment of wholesale houses in
British Columbia. Willi the railway and ttie river at her very doors,
no other city should be able to compete with her successfully in this
branch of trade. Goods nre laid
down here in bulk as cheaply
as they can be laid down anywhere
else, and our facilities for distributing them cheaply and promptly are
unequalled. We shall be glad to
state, on the second anniversary of
the opening of the railway, thnt the
year has been marked by tbe pstnlr-
liihment of wholesale housen carrying the leading lines of inerchau-
dise at least. We hope also to say
that the corporation of this city has
shown an enterprise in keeping with
the enterprise of private citizens,
mid endeavored to keep pace with
the new older of advancement. A
city loan should be negotiated early-
next year, and by means of this
loon (he appearance of the streets
and parks of the city should be
greatly improved. There should be
erected a city hall of whicli tho
people of the royal oity need not be
ashamed. It is to be hoped also
that a market will be established so
at to facilitate the exchange of produce and other things brought from
the surrounding country. The opening of the gas works, although not
of such importance as the railway,
is, nevertheless, an incident that has
given character to our city, which
is rapidly assuming a metropolitan
appearance. The first year of railway and gas bas been wonderfully
satisfactory: we hope the second
will he even more so.

A Sluggish Liver
Causes the Stomach and Bowels to becomo disordered, and the whole system
to suffer from debility. In all such
cases Ayor's Fills give prompt relief.
After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I have iinally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Pills,
I always find tliem prompt and thorough
ln their action, and tlieir occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condition.— Ralph \Y ecniiin, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-flvo years ago I Buffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I have never heen without them. They regulate tho bowels,
assist digestion, und increase the nppu-
tito, more surely than auy other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Muss,
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayor's
Pills for Stomach and Livor disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was palo and emaciated. A fow
boxes of Ayer'B Pills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health. —
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Pllla ore a superior family
medicine, Thoy strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting irom
Liver Complaint. I have used these
Pills in my family, for years, and they
never fail to give entire satisfaction.—

Bishop   Tnylof's   Experience   with   a
Salile.—A Solemn Ceremony,   „
111 about half an hour tlio king came.
He was attended by a body-guard of
100 soldiers armed for combat. The
introduction was unceremonious, because the two men could not speak a
common lnnjrmw. Tho bishop relieved the situation of any awkwardness by stepping forwanl quickly and
extending hiB hnnd to royally, 'ayini;
as he did so, "I'm glad to meet you."
The king received Ihe proli'ereil haul
with dignity, nird when the bishop's
words had beeui iraimlntoil to him lie
responded:
"I have heard of Iho old white man,
well digger, lonn walker, who speaks
kind words. What ivoiil I the old white
man do In Mambulun jo '.'"
"I am on my w y," explained tho
bishop, "to Malanr!", where friends will
follow me and stay."
"You are w'eliroiirj to "ilambalungo,"
continued the kin,'. "Why not stay
here with us rather than jo.irnev on to
Malange?"
I have many places to visit, 0 king,
but my friends who will foil m* me will
visit you. Yon uto ilow at wnr*; when
there is peace ugitin you mny sue much
of us."
The answer wns well understood by
the African, hut he untie no objection;
In a moment ho continued: ,4iel uie
what it is that tlie, old wllite man,, well
digger, long walker, and . his friends
would do Ih this l.inrl 1"
"We come to live among you, to
bring you jreacu und to tell you of many
good things."
Tho king was1 impressed deeply wllh
the idea thnt the li sho;r an I Itis friends
had come to stay an I lo wnr; lor themselves upon the ,o.l iliin I oi trrnlini.
As he talked with the brsli ji, lie grew
to like the ol I wllite m.iu more and
more, and nt last he sail: "We have
heard that th r in •n oi Kumbua are
eoiiiing to make war upon us.
They lie between her r mil Malange.
You will not venture to • n riuij your
journey iVfor' we have luleated them
and brought about a p,-iu.v V'
"Yes, U kin;;:' ivpliml tho hidiop.
"I shall go on as soon as 1 can. lama
friend to ilia p ople of .Mambiiltiiigo
und their kin.'. i,ut 1 am nlso a friend
to the Kniiilmann ami their kilirj likewise. Thi re is no .lunger for me fro u
them any more than llwrj is danger
from you.. There is One above uie to
guard and prelect me.''
- "The while man's Ood is indeed very
powerful," ussi'titod the king, gravely,
"and the while iirnii spjaki bravely and
frankly. None other would I permit
to pass from our town lo Ihe army of
tho KuinbutiiH. 1 lielievo you are my
friend and I will show you that I am
yours."
He thereupon summoned his chief
lieutenant, an I niter a brief talk with
him sat down on ilia floor of the hut
and beckoned the bishop to sit beside
him. The lieutenant then did soma
talking, th ■ purport of which was that
the king desired to cement the friendship he hnd formed for the white man'
by having the ceremony of blood
brotherhood performed upon them.
The bishop fomented, although he
knew little of Ihe ceremony.
The lieutenant produced a sharp
pointed knife, highly polished, which
he touched upon his tongue, whether
to test its sharpness, after the manner
nf barirers, or to give proof that it waa
luu poisoned the bishop could not be
cert tin. 'I lien, standing up before the
kirn; and the bishop, hormndu an inline sivj address, which' the bishop
lerune.I later was about the relations
Hi ri" i ihltn maintain between brothers.
Tlit n ne knelt by the king, who raised
his robes slightly sons to disclose hia
l.g irrirotoflieknee.
The lieutenant pricked the call with
the point oi his knife, so that a few
drops of blood ran. He caught them
in Iris left hand and turned to the bis-
Iron, who, comprehending the situation,
rolled his trousers part way up his legs.
The lieutenant made a similar incision
upon the bishop's calf and caught tbe
dropping blood in the same hand that
h'l I llio king's blood. Then he stood
up ugriin and rubbed the palm of his
hands together, so that the blood was
thoroughly mixed, after which he
spntted both hands violently upon th.
ground, rubbing off all traces ol the
oloorl with dust, saying as he did so:
"Un a dragon spring forth from the
mingled blood upon the ground and destroy hi in who shall Drat break the tie.
of brotherhood here formed."
The king arose, reached out hia hand
to the bishop, who extended his own
hand, ami they shook solemnly, and
the ceremony waa over,     	
Old Fa.hloned Xootk PoUIn
I remember having a tooth pulled
once by the old doctor. Hia wife aeated
liLTselfln « chair, and placed me en thu
floor with my head claaped betweer.
her knees. Then the doctor brought
out his turnkey—which was constructed
somewhat like one of the levers with a
movable hook used tor the rolling ol
logs-and fished (rom hie pocket an old
bandana handkerchief, which had done
service for mouth, now and perspiration for. month or two, and wadded
il about the handle of the machine.
This bundle lie pushed in my mouth,
oiler having llacwl the gums, and commenced wMins to get the end of the
hook under the tooth. Having accomplished this, he began to grind on the
lr.nnlla.and at tlie same moment the
old lady tightened her grasp on my
head. The top of ray head seemed being pried oft"; and all the marrow in my
bones seemed to be pulled up iu strings
toward my neck. Crack I the instrument slipped off. Again itwaalixed,
and again the top of my head |»'oa
turned upward with a violehterash, and
again the reludtont marrow was drawn
out in strings. Three times did the
machine slip; the fourth trial was
made, the top of my head was wrenched
entirely olf, and the marrow tn my
system, my boots, bones, and all, ap-
jicaredto be drtwn up with a terrific
pull, and the molar was extracted.
I pocketed the tooth, Hr pocketed a
sriilluii!. nml tlreu I left.   '
It was not an imeouinron occurrence in

Bird Legend..
. Following are a few of the mnny bird
legends that people with hr'slit imaginations and ready inventions have connected with feathered musicians:
The poor cuckoo, whose mournful
cry sounds so desolate ill the qu.et
wood, is always mourning for tho deaili
of a beloved brother. The cuckoo wns
originally a beautiful young, maiden.
She caused her brother's death unintentionally, and waa changed into the
bird whose snd cry ia an expression of
her bitter grief.
The owl was also once a beautiful
young girl. She was a baker's daughter, i hie day a good man, passing by.
osked for a piece uf broad. She refused
it, nn I as a punishment was chained
into an owl. In Germany tho swallow
uud Ihe lark are sacred birds, and their
morning song is considered u hymn.
The nightingale, you know, only
shim ut nrght. This wns not so for-
in- rly. One night a nightingale iell mat
asleep, audi the tendrils of the vine it
snt upon grew round its fuel, ao that it
could not get away, and dually it died.
Since thou tho other nigtiuguies never
dared sleep at night
Piiunhj. Use only the host selected
prunes. Put them into warm water to
clean them; lot them stand a fow
minutes, rubbing gently between the
hands to be sure that all dust and dirt is
removed; rinse, and if rather dry and
liartl, put them into three parts of water
to ono of prunes; cover closely, and let
them simmer for several hours.   If tin
Krunes are quite easily cooked tender,
rss water may be used, but they should
be simmered slowly as before. A slice
of lemon, ndtlod just before tho prunes
are done, Is thought by some to ho an
improvement. Cooked in this way, they
will bo soft and sweet, with a thick juice,
and need no sugar whatever. Mnn,'
pemons who cannot eat fruit cooked with
sugar, can safely partake of prunes cooked
iu this way.
A Creaking Binge
la dry and turnaliard.untiloil is applied,
after which it moves easily. When tlie
joints, or hin-jes, of the body are stiffened
and inflamed by Rheumatism, they cannot be moved without causing the moat
excruciating pains. Ayor's SarsapariUa,
by Its action on tlio blood, rclievaa this
condition, and restores the joints to good
Working ord or.
Ayor's Sar.iaparilla has offeoted, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which battled the efforts of the
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary. I could givo tlio names of
many individuals who havo been cured
by taking this medicine. In my caso It
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
impure blood, thero is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords suoh

I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease

A Quod Move,
When the Royal Etiirinuur. wore
stationed at Sapperton mnny years ago
tho imperial government, aiming other
stores, sent out fuur complete sets uf
artillery harness, which were kept under tho care of tho storekeeper, Mr.
John Murray. The Dominion government took over the stores some years
ago and Mr. Murray held the above
mentioned harness fur wages, as storekeeper, which had not been paid. It
is now proposed to bey these lianii-ss
by a citizens' subscription fur ihe
artillery, and a list will be sent round
in a few days for thoso to sign who
wish to contribute to this worthy object. The artillery are a fine corps
and should be supported in every way
by our citizens; the city council also
should contribute to this fund and uid
in keeping the battery uot only tho
best drilled but tho best appointed in
the province.
The Kamloops IHnrder.
Conductor Trodden, of the C.P.R.,
was in Kamloops on the night of tho
Indian shooting affray during which
Pctsa killed one man and mortally
wounding another. Mr. Trodden says
it was supposed to be the chief ot tho
tribe who shot Potsa after the latter
had killed the watchman. Potsa's
horse was also killed and both bodies
were riddled with bullets. The affair
caused much excitement and the Indians were considerably agitated over
it. After tbe shouting was known in
Kamloops several people went over to
the reservation; they found tho wife of
the dead Indian, with her husband's
corpse in her arms, wailing and moaning in a pitiful manner. It is thought
this affair will have a wholesome effect
on some of the Indians who are inclined to overlook the law entirely
and think they can commit depredations and behave at will without pun*
ish ment.
The China Steamer.
The steamer Parthia arrived in Vancouver lust night at G o'clock, 14 days
out from Yokohama. Head winds nnd
very stormy weather wero met with
during tho latter part of the voyage,
which spoiled what at tirst promised tu
be the fastest trip on record to that
port. The Parthia took on a pilot at
8 o'clock.yesterday morning at #Miui-
nialt,. and after landing two second
class passengers and tMrteeu Chinese
proceeded to the tetmi mil city. Strange
as it may seem, no mails wero lauded
at Esquimalt, but tbat was probably
an oversight. The Pnrthia brought a
full passenger list, and had her cabin
accommodations been' more extensive
she would have brought many moro.
Her manifest, which is a very large
uno, iB made up as follows: 34,125
pkgs tea, 4.302 mdso, 3,482 rice, 412

The Medical Conncll.
The Medical Council of British Columbia havo been holding their regular meeting to-duy and yesterday at
the Colonial Hotel, Dr. Powell, acting
president, in the chair. Three gentlemen, viz., Drs, Budingtun, Fagan
and Samson, having passed the examination and complied with the requirements of the act, havo been admitted
to the register of tho province. There
is no doubt thut the act as carried uut
by tho council is productive not onlv
of keeping up a high standard among
the medical practitioners, but nlso of
giving greater confidence to those who
may require medical attendance. Dr.
W. A. DeWolf Smith, of this city,
was unanimously elected to till the
vacancy in the council caused by the
death of Dr Trew. The examinations
wero conducted by Drs. Puwoll, Milne,
Hunningtun Mufiuigun, and Tuu
Btall, all of whom will leave the city
this evening.
The next meeting of the council will
be held in Victoria un tlm lirst Monday in May, 1888.
The following resolution of condolence to Mrs. Trew was passed during
the sitting:
Tho Medical Council uf British Columbia has learned with profound re-
grut of tho death uf their lute president, Dr. C. N, Trew, of New Westminster.
The Medical Council now twseiubled,
in lamenting the loss uf their lute
friend and companion, nnd deploring
the demise of a most valued officer,
whose earnest efforts were always exerted iir upholding the higfiost standard uf the profession in this province, and to whose efforts the establishment uf tlm iiiceicnl e-mticH was
mainly due, aro only ^fleeting the
feeling of sorrow which is experienced
by the members of the profession
throughout the province, by whom thu
late Dr. Trow wus so universally and
deservedly esteemed.
Tu his bereaved widow and children,
whose loss of a loving husband and
affoetionnto father is irreparable, wo
join iu tendering thu heartfelt sympathy experienced generally by the
entire community, who feel that au
uid nud faithful citizen has been unexpectedly taken from our midst.

From Ladners. ,
{Correspondence of tho Columbian.)
Ladners, Oct'. 31,— The steamer
Falcon arrived to-day with a scow of
lumber from Port Moody, the first
shipment of the 150,000 feet ordered
from there by different parties here,
they being ablo to get it for $2 a thousand less than at the Westminster mills.
Tho Falcon also brought u raft of piles
for Mr. MoNeely's new wharf. Capt.
Cowper reports a ' "dirty" trip, but his
staunch craft gave him every satisfaction.—Harvest is finished, and farmers are busy storing their roots, &c,
for winter feed. Tho yield of all
crops has been disappointing. Hay
is selling readily at $20 a tuu here,
notwithstanding that Victoria parties
claim they can get it from Manitoba
for $10 a tun, freight paid to Victoria.
Apropos of the Manitoba produce, a
better known than respected dealer in
Victoria shipped about 2 tons of his
refuse, thistle, sorrel and weed seed,
up here hist week, a sample of which
I send you, but a number of our leading farmers clubbed together and
bought the stuff and'intend to burn it
in unlet- that it may uot be propagated
iu this settlement, It is a disgrace
ami should be a criminal act for any
man to ship such a collection of weed
seeds hi-io. It is what was fanned out
of "Manitoba uats"—The proposed
concert in aid of the Royal Columbian
Hospital Itas fallen through, one ur
two mercenary fennlos objecting to
getting up a concert fur such an object,
ns they du not like to see the moneij qo
out of the plnvti.— A meeting is shor ly
to bu hold to esbihlisli an Hgrjoultlirttl
society here.—Tin.' Delta quadrille,
club opens the season un Friday next
with a ball, and a very pleasant party
is expected, tlio arrangements being
carried out by a strong committee.
—We were pleased to have the Ven.
Archdeacon Woods amongst us: he
came down to conduct tlio harvest
thanksgiving services in All Saints'
Church, and it was a pleasure to see
the church tilled at both services.—
Willie McKoe was around tu-day look-
iui> well, although still carrying his
crutches along.—Tho caunerii's have
all closed down, having had iv successful season.-—[The stuff sent by our
correspoudent is a paper bag of seeds
uud refuse sufficient to propoxate weeds
over a whole farm. We agree with
the remark that there ought to be a
law to prevent such dangerous stuff
coming into the country, nnd we commend the public spirit of the Delta
farmers who promptly took measures
to destroy the first consignment.
